GO has signed an agreement which will enable operators which don’t have their own network to make use of GO’s state-of-the-art Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) network in order to offer fixed broadbandservices, powered by GO’s fibre network, to their respective subscribers.
“With this agreement, GO continues to confirm itself as the main investor in Malta’s successful telecommunications infrastructure, enabling operatorsto service their customers better,” said GO’s CEO Nikhil Patil.
“GO has been investing millions every year to ensure a robust telecommunications infrastructure that can service the increased demand and to support Malta and its growing economy. We have done so at great expense, effort and risk so that Malta can be at the forefront when it comes to technology and telecommunications because, as a Maltese-grown company, GO sees, understands, and strives to exceed people’s and businesses’ expectations. GO is proud of this investment that delivered the required infrastructure for Government to realise its vision for Malta to become the blockchain island.”
Patil remarked that not all operators have the will,nor the propensity to invest in Malta the way GO has been investing in FTTH across the islands over the past years.In fact, GO plans to be the only operator with a fibre network reaching the majority of Maltese households.
Meanwhile Go and Vodafone have reached a “ground-breaking” agreement through which Vodafone will be able to provide internet services over GO’s Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) network.
The two companies are expected to finalise technical details concerning the deal over the next six months.
In a statement, the Malta Communications Authority said this was a pioneering move, for its extent and for the efficiency by which the parties had reached an agreement.
